I am a proud, though admittedly untraditional, Colorado native (currently INK’s one and only!). Untraditional in the sense that no, I have never been skiing, snowboarding, hunting or climbed a fourteener. Instead you can find me exploring local breweries, hunting down new hipster coffee shops, or embarking on strictly easy-to-moderate level hikes to take in the stellar views of my home state.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in journalism and media communication from Colorado State University (go Rams!) as a first generation student. Throughout my time at CSU, I was fortunate to have completed a range of internships and practicums that allowed me to further explore the world of public relations. I tried my hand at the travel/tourism and beauty/home/lifestyle industries, but always found myself intrigued by the fast-paced, ever-evolving world of tech PR. So when luck led me to INK (via impressive Instagram stalking skills), I said goodbye to my little haven of Fort Collins and made the move to D-town to pursue my passion as part of this big, happy family.
A born wonderist, I’ve always found myself deeply interested in learning and sharing others’ stories. At INK, I’m lucky to work on a diverse spectrum of clients from non-profits to enterprise software and a little bit of everything in between. What I love most about INK is that there’s always something new to learn and experience — whether it’s supporting media relations efforts for a campaign launch, diving into research for a new client, or reporting on the month’s successes, each day is a new adventure.
Inspired by my time at INK, I’ve recently declared “carpe” my guide word. I use it to remind myself to make a conscious effort to seize every opportunity with confidence and drive. In the words of the great Dr. Seuss, “You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so… get on your way!”
I am best known for my irrational fear of sharks, uncanny ability to quote Spongebob, incessant use of the word “groovy,” and painful overuse of adjectives.
